Alcohol and a barely-there costume aren’t the only ingredients for a perfect Halloween party. Read on for our tips and tricks—and, you guessed it, treats.
Cobwebs, Pumpkins, and Skulls, Oh My!
Whether you’re going for cute or all-out spooky, the decorations take importance over everything else. It’s important to set the mood at the door and what better way than with great décor? Get festive with cobwebs and skulls—this is your time to really go all out and show your creativity.
Trick or Treat Your Guests!
Everyone knows people celebrate Halloween for one reason: to get candy! Instead of just handing out candy at the party, use it to create some terrific treats. Combine all the candy you collect from a fruitful trick-or-treat session and create Halloween Bark by mixing in Kit-Kats, Reese’s, M&M’s, candy corn, and melted chocolate. Freeze it and you have a treat that preserves all your candy for a couple more days.
Raise the Spirits with Your Spirits
What’s a party without some good drinks? A “bloody punch” is so cliché and so 1998 Halloweentown. Spice up your shots with plastic syringes.
Although the décor sets the mood of the party, the music really ties everything together. You aren’t going to play “Walking on Sunshine” at a Halloween party! Here are some suggestions to make your party a graveyard smash.
- “Thriller” by Michael Jackson
- “Somebody’s Watching Me” by Rockwell
- “Highway to Hell” by AC/DC
Why play regular beer pong when you can play Hogwarts-style Quidditch pong? This will be especially fun to play after your guests have taken a couple syringe shots!
